And with every new season comes new dogs; this season we have new puppies, some born at the kennel and some adopted from other kennels to begin their job here at Durango Dog Ranch. Flashflood and Hailstorm were Martha's only two pups this summer and they are named appropriately after natural disasters. Jeepster and McFuzz were adopted from a nearby kennel and are very happy to be romping and playing with the others. Jeepster has been lucky enough to be taken in by Lydia, our fourteen year old daughter, who has broken the "no dogs in the bed" rule and he can be seen gazing lovingly from her bed while she does her homework. And with new pups come new things:
